Poem 34-Monuments around the world

The leaning tower of Pisa
and the pyramids of Giza
All these monuments are very great
Places you'll like and not hate

The long amazon river
And the tall Eiffel tower
are places that I would like to see
Places that I'll see with glee

So one day when I am free
I'll go to the places not seen by me
and a few other places too
but for me everything i see will be new
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 33-Messy room

Your room is in a mess
In every place is scattered a book or a dress
You go and clean it at once
or for tea you wont get buns

My mom was in a fit
I knew now I had to clean it
I picked up every dress and book
and made sure I cleaned every nook
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 32- Oliver Twist

I pulled my hat a bit more down
'course I had to in this hot town
'Ay 'Ay I was carryin' a heavy sack
And now I had grazed my back

Now of the days I have lost track
From the day I knew what was a whack
They taught a scared old boy who is nine
yes they taught me how to steal somethin' thats not mine

Yes this is the life of Oliver Twist
To live in the hot or to live in a mist
From the theft school now he had run away
Here he is now walking in the hot sun of may

Poem 31-The lost kid

Around the streets wandered the boy
Carrying his only thing, a small toy
Crying and not knowing what to do
I am sure the little boy wished this was not true

After some time he came and asked me
'My father did you see'?
I held his hands and said No
and the boy started crying in woe

At that time he pushed my hands and ran
and ran and ran to a man
The man his father took him to a car
and both of them went very very far
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 30-Park eve

In the beautiful light of the eve
I saw many people leave
The park in front of my home
where i go and freely roam

A place where I love to sit
A place that keeps me fit
To reach there I usually race
Of course my favorite place

Whether it is light or dark
I simply love that park
That is the best place I have seen
The best place to where I have been
- Gaurang Rao

Poem 29- Funny night

It was very dark
When I heard my dog bark
I thought somebody was in my house
or was it just a mouse

I tiptoed to the hall
where i tripped over a ball
When I thought I was gone
The lights flashed on

I almost jumped out of my skin
and wobbling was my chin
I thought I'll be shot
But what a shock I got

It was only my mother
Who had come to drink water
so my folk
wasn't this a joke?
-Gaurang Rao

Poem 28- Exams october

True came my fear
the exams have come near
Study is the only thing I can do
about Christopher Columbus and his crew

And now to you I will say goodbye
you know the reason so don't ask me why?
I'll miss you my buddy
-Gaurang Rao
